East Of The Sun And West Of The Moon
Cat Athena Louise
Painting - Watercolor & Mixed Media
This is an illustrated scene that I have interpreted from the story 'East of the Sun and West of the Moon; Old Tales from the North' ~a Norwegian Fairytale [collected by Peter Christen Asbjornsen.] It was most famously illustrated by Danish artist Kay Nielsen in an art nouveau style (1914). I have always adored the evocative imagery in this fable full of riddles, tests and seemingly insurmountable obstacles, as the Heroine encounters reversals and set-backs in the pathway during her Quest.
